What all that chain link on the hillside is doing…

You must have run into these: chain link fence “nets” on cliffs and so forth, presumably to catch falling rocks.  I see these things all the time on the trail (read: mountain roads near Fallbrook, Ramona, etc.) and frankly thought they were a joke.  Chain link fence?  Shoot, that crap can’t even keep out the neighborhood hoodlums, let alone 5 tons of rock.

I am perfectly happy to be corrected on this point.  Awesome.  Just awesome.  I can’t embed Liveleak video for some reason but I am sure you’ll survive the click.
